-v.1.3 reworked the Cecrops (C) & (M), reduced the damage(175->155) and rate of fire(10->12) of the missiles, reduced the ECM and Nav rating (half as much) of the linnormr and vasuki (SWACS) also reworked their shipsystems: reduced the chance to affect fighters/drones, no range reduction for large ships, missiles get their targeting affected instead of flaming out, added a new mission.

I would LOVE such a feature. Nexerelin has something similar where you have a "follow me" ping for allied fleets. However it's rather wonky and fleets get sidetracked very easily. I imagine it's one of the harder thing to do.
Good luck!

Play tested these ships a bit in the editor. The ships themselves feel alright, but the custom weapons might be a bit too op compared to vanilla. Especially the Buccaneer PD system, it basically outclasses the Burst PD laser system in every single way possible, with just a higher OP and flux cost.

Edit: It's actually insane how good the Aegis Cruiser is. I was able to completely negate an Atlas's fighter and bomber compliment with it.

Ah thanks for the feedback, I'll nerfbalance it in the next version
funny how the Buccaneer has exactly the same stats as Diable's Burchel beam repeater, I guess I'll have to make it more vanilla friendly

So nice to see ships with green colors. That shade of color is really rare in modded ships these days. I hope you keep it up and eventually create a new faction out of these ships.
Say, What the new faction's lore going to be, in a nutcase?

Some quick balance notes from using the ships:
The Strauss M is insanely good for how inexpensive it is. 12 small missile slots and a missile autoforge are way too powerful for a roughly destroyer-sized ship.
GKSec Wolf seems fair, I like being able to put kinetic weapons on it. A nice change when combined with the lower flux stats.

Balance is... Off.
With Vir and no skills, I could solo dominator, eagle, hammerhead and enforcer - at once!
Green Sunder seems powerful as well, but I can't beat eagle with it alone, at least for now, so it's not that powerful. Still, it feels like you're unnecessarily spamming damper field when you shouldn't.
Not to mention Varo not only is very fast, it also can have very long-range weapons... It's an ideal pursuit ship, but probably it'd be super irritating to fight against one.

Since you got them from the sprite dump, it kinda looks like their ships were pirated of some sort.
(In a cool starsector way! Not stealing XP.) Looks pretty cool!

ahahah yeah I plan to put the faction homebase in Agreus(Arcadia system), the description says that the planet is a center of ship-breaking and ship-reconstruction so I guess it is fitting  Grin

Two issues I see with the sprites:
One: The Sunder looking variant looks unshaded on the top rear portion of the ship that is shaped like an A
Two: The Vir looks WAAAAAY too similar to the Diable Avionics tanker ship it was based off of
